    Question Facebook likes not working in chrome

    I have a Facebook like button on my webpages, which works in edge, safari, Firefox, but not in chrome. Or to be more precise, it sometimes works in chrome, but seems to not be consistently working, possibly in all browsers.
    Itís a simple iframe with

    https://www.facebook.com/plugins/lik....biz/calc2.php

    as src...
    Is there something simple to permanently fix this error?
    Iíve been researching the issue, and the solutions involve being logged into Facebook in chrome. Problem is, I am logged into Facebook on chrome...

    From what I understand, this is a known bug in Chrome where it will not always render the contents of an iframe. Looking a bit more into this, it seems like it mainly happens when the underlying source is relying in jQuery.

    Could i solve it by linking the correct version of jQuery? At present i have no link

    Edit: By linking I mean importing in the html head space, or however it is you include a js library

    I'm sorry for the late reply.

    To be honest, I'm not entirely certain.

    Does Facebook provide an alternative to the iframe option?

    No, but if itís a JQuery issue, it would probably help to include the right libraries
